Two boys seriously injured when bounce house is blown into the air Published: May 14, 2014

SOUTH GLENS FALLS -- Two young boys were seriously hurt late Monday afternoon when a gust of wind blew an inflatable “bounce house” into the air with three children inside, tossing two of them to the asphalt from at least 15 feet above ground, reports the Glens Falls Post-Star.

The boys, ages 5 and 6, were taken to Albany Medical Center, where they were admitted for serious injuries.

One suffered a traumatic head injury, officials said. A 10-year-old girl who was inside suffered minor scrapes when she fell, according to her mother.
